Hi, Steve! I'm 56, and was diagnosed recently with prostate cancer. The only reason that the Urologist nixed Brachytherapy, is that my prostate is nestled too close to my bladder, and the chance of colateral damage is too great. I don't know what your "history" is but, you can go to "man to man," a discussion group on the American Cancer Society web page, and chat with other guys who have been through all the treatments, collectively. Make sure you got to the ACS web site first, then link to the group, otherwise you get sent to a gay mens chat group, which probably won't help your problem much.
Since my diagnosis, I have, through direct observation of my own cancer, and talking to cancer survivors, come to the conclusion that diet is an important component is cancer treatment. Since cancer seems to rob you of vital nutrients, and thrive on certain things you eat, and Doctors KNOW this, why aren't knowledgeable nutritionist brought on board to assist a cancer victim, ASAP, after diagnosis? Doctors appear to turn a blind eye to the importance of the value of a dietary change, and what it may, do to assist in treatment. Since up to 40% of cancer patients die of nutrition problems, why the reluctance to feed the person, and NOT the cancer?
Hi, Jamie. I am sorry to hear about your Mothers' situation. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, around April/May of this year. I was in the process of scheduling surgery for it, when I thought it would be prudent to check out a lump, just under my rib cage. This turned out to be a metastasized cancer from an unknown primary that has settles in my peritoneum, bad news, very bad news. The point is that cancer turns your whole life around! You get some good news, only to get some bad news behind it. Most Western medicine seems to have a narrow focus. You, and your Mother have to actively search the internet for viable alternate solutions, that may work in combination with traditional medicine. Most that I have met who are cured, or living with cancers are on a regimine of both, with a great deal of faith. Understand, these are people that I, have met through networking. Unfortunately, we tend to feel like we've been written off, and it can get depressing. I have been investigating a clinic that was brought to my attention by someone I met through a friend, who is fighting lung cancer, and has had a lung removed. They claim to have good success, using heat, generated by radio waves, to kill cancer cells. They also claim to have a good cure rate with drug resistent cancers. I am 56 years old, with six children, and would like to live to see my youngest, 8 & 11, into adulthood. I'd like to see my three grandchildren develop. The bottom line is, we want to live. Be proactive, and look for treatments. Don't let sorrow waste precious time. We can't afford to die from ignorance, which is what tends to kill a lot of us.
I was diagnosed with cancer that has metasticized to my peritoneum, from, it is strongly suspected, an unknown location in my GI tract. I also have prostate cancer that is still contained within the prostate bulb. The prostate cancer was diagnosed first acoupl of months ago, I started taking a supliment called Transfer Factor Plus, which the manufacturer claims, increases the number of macrophages produced by the immume system. My PSA count, which was 11, when I started taking TF+, is now 10. As this new threat is more pressing, I'm wondering if the macrophages will goto work on the cancer cells in my peritoneum. I am currently looking for clinical trials to participate in.
